Combination REMASTER info:
Audience PCM Beta tape > Sony SL-HF900 Beta deck > Sony PCM601ESD interface
Soundboard CD received in trade

Notes: The six summer of 1987 Dylan/Dead shows were interesting because it seems that a lot of Bob Dylan fans who were not also Grateful Dead fans thought it to be a low point of Dylan's career while Bob Dylan himself and the Dead band members loved the experience (as did the Deadheads of course). The problem for Dylan's fans was that although the musicians had run through a huge number of songs during the early June rehearsals, nothing was heavily practiced and the Dead members had no clue of the setlists until shortly before each show. None of this bothered Dylan, The Dead or the Deadheads much, but Dylan fans who wanted a slick backing band were disappointed.
The mastering deck for this tour's soundboard recordings was a Sony PCM digital multitrack wide tape format from which mixed-down preview copies were made on cassettes for Dylan and the Dead members to pick out which songs would be used for the planned album release.
Soundboard Sony multi-track PCM master > mixdown cassette [recorded on Sony TCD5M] > Sony F1 PCM Beta tape > PCM Beta clone > CD [digital transfer with HHB standalone]. Secondary source: Unknown lineage (low gen.) audience recording from PCM Beta tape copy [note: the audience source was speeded up by approx. 1.4 percent - adjusted with Pro Tools to match speed of soundboard source which was correct].

A fun set
I love the musical combination of the GD backing up Dylan, and this recording is pretty nice- could use more Phil on bass and less Dylan acoustic strumming; BD's vocals could have been better. Really the Rainy Day Women. But the GD-only versions of "Ballad of Thin man" are superior (check out 4-1-88 Brendan Byrne for instance...) On the plus side, at least only "Queen Lame" was culled because of commercial release!
